|Remarriage of Thomas Walters|
Two children with the same names and ages as Thomas' children are shown in the 1851 census living with Mary Walters. They are said to be son and daughter. This raised the possibility that Thomas had remarried after Jane's death in 1841.
Possible marriages for Thomas Walters to Mary were looked for.
One was to Mary Ann Ashmore in 1850 at St Martin, Birmingham. However, his age is given as 40 which is 10 years out and neither the occupation nor address really fit.
However, there is a marriage between Thomas Walters on Mary Lent in 1842. Both were widowed, Thomas appears to be a Brassfounder and his address was still Mosley Street. In addition Thomas Coates was a witness at both his marriages. Therefore, with a reasonable degree of confidence, this seems to be his second marriage.
His father is given as James Walters, which is different to what had previously been thought.
Her father is given as John Chambers, implying that Lent was the surname of her first husband.
